Greatest Fears or Golden Opportunities

 

main_900This seemed like a much needed re-post given the times we are living in. I know I found it a helpful reminder:

Sometimes it takes the biggest challenges in life to force us to evolve into the Beings we are meant to become.

When we’re down and out; feelings like we are going to collapse from exhaustion already.  Suddenly something else comes from out of the blue … something so dire that it jolts us out of our weariness.  It pushes us beyond what we are capable and before we know it … we’re there … we’ve arrived at where God intended us to be all along.

However, we MUST vigilantly be open … vulnerable … in order to perceive God’s guidance.  In my meditations today (on my prior post, “Willful Exposure“) I reflect on what it is necessary to be vulnerable.  Sometimes we master one aspect of it; say we’ve learned how to not cling to the things we desire … we’ve learned how to let go.  Then something else comes along and shows us yet another facet that we have been missing all along; someone berates you and you harden yourself … you push away.

In truth, the state of vulnerability requires a sort of spiritual stasis … one in which we are neither clinging, or pushing away.  We don’t react to the inner longings that push us to grasp for what our heart aches for.  Nor do we react to the machinations of the outer world … which is full of people desperately trying to cling to what they want.

When you are calm, and still … the cords of reaction that bind you simply slip away and you are then free to ACT.  You are free to make decisions based on where you feel God is leading you.  When you are in that place you are actually able to hear, and sense, where God is leading you.  You also see how completely lost you were for so long before.

But … in order to arrive at that place … you have to be vulnerable in the face of your greatest fears.  If you let the opportunity pass you by … you will just be lost in the never ending maze that is Reaction.

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
